Delhi's First Public Art Festival
48℃ Public. Art. Ecology.
2008 12/12~21 Chandni Chowk, Delhi, India
The festival's title, 48C Public. Art. Ecology, is thus an urgent reference to the exigencies of global warmingwhich can be felt in Delh's continuously escalating summer temperatures, as also to the frenzied paradoxes of citythat seems to be in perpetual, strident oerdrive, yet is also mutely violently, 'runnng on emoty'.

as Future Water Vessel
Hoping to grasp metropolitan Delhi as 'Waterpolis' where all people exist in equality with water, the WATERPOLIS in Delhi is presented as the Future Water Vessel rowing in the stream flowing between the Metropolitan Mega Dream and the Community Aspiration.
WATERPOLIS is now lying at anchor in Chandni Chowk to assemble 'crews' fighting with serious water issues and conservation.
placards + 80 liters Water Boxes + bacpacking tools
Be just a crew of Future Water Vessel !
Turning around the former fountain in front of the Town Hall, you can look at ten pieces of 'Water Backpacking' including placards with various expression of hands scooping up water.
